Annotation Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalayas, six Tibetan teenagers set out to climb the Lhakpa Ri on the north side of Mt. Everest. This dangerous journey is made all the more remarkable due to the fact that they are blind. Traditional Tibetan attitudes have caused the teens to be shunned by society and their parents. Sabriye Tenberken rescues the children by establishing the first school for the blind in Tibet. When the students invite the blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer to visit, they are propelled on a three week adventure that takes them higher than ever. Menu navigation required.
